Melissa came to our house to take pictures of our first son on a drizzly November morning. She was prepared and on time, even though we were running behind because, well, seven-month olds don't keep to such punctual schedules. Melissa and I had discussed ideas before the date and she immediately began sharing her thoughts and getting us organized. She wasn't afraid to move furniture for the sake of the picture. I loved that. Even with the drizzly scenario, we wanted exterior pictures and she magically made it work. Our photos were beautiful, delivered just a few weeks later on a little jump drive, and shortly after I ordered the best custom Chirstmas cards from Melissa that I have ever sent out. We loved her services so much, we booked her again this past summer and had a great shoot on the beach. This is how good her work is: my son was so miserable (with teething or life, who knows) and you can't even tell in the pictures! If that's not worth your money, I don't know what is.
